Prevent an S series switch from setting up an OSPF neighbor relationship with a device connecting to an interface on the switch

Run the silent-interface command on an interface of an S series switch supporting OSPF. Then the switch cannot set up an OSPF relationship with the device connecting to the interface.
To enable OSPF on many interfaces while disabling OSPF neighbor relationship establishment on most interfaces, run the silent-interface all command and then run the undo silent-interface command to enable OSPF neighbor relationship establishment on specified interfaces.
